Ancient Models, Modern Teachers, and Moral Education: Choosing a Peaceful Pedagogy


by Brian White — February 11, 2001

This article contrasts two ancient, highly influential pedagogical role models, focusing especially on their interactions with resistant and reluctant learners: one attacked resistant students and attempted to overpower them intellectually; the other invited even hostile students to join a community of learners and to share in honest dialogue. The article encourages teachers to be aware of the models who have influenced their teaching, to choose their pedagogical role models carefully, and to adopt pedagogical approaches and strategies that are likely to promote peaceful learning in modern classrooms.
